Some natural holiday decorations to kick of the season!
The final weeks of the year are underway, too often they are clouded by the holiday mania that occurs.

I made sure to get outside on Thursday and enjoy the day. The weather was perfect for a late afternoon hike, another reason for giving thanks.

Perhaps it is because it is a sign of shelter, or abundance or what we like to call “simpler times”. Whatever the reason, a barn is a beautiful piece of utilitarian architecture.
